Comfy beds, great breakfast, friendly staff
We had a lovely stay at the Orkin Hotel on the first and last night of our Icelanding family road trip. The quadruple room was super comfortable and the kids loved having a separate “floor” for themselves. Breakfast was tasty and generous, and daily free cake and coffee/tea at 5pm was an unexpected bonus. We also made use of the game room where we could all enjoy ping pong, darts and foosball, and even piano. The reception staff were super friendly and helpful. Walking distance to the center of Reykjavik. Highly recommend you book your stay there, especially if you’re traveling on a budget.
